Hello Ladies! Thank you for joining me for another Fencepost Friday! it really touched my heart that many of you responded to last week’s post about finances. I want you to know I appreciated the wisdom that each one of you brought, and your unique stories. So awesome, this is what makes Blogland great. :)
This week I want to talk about routine. My bloggy friend Mrs. Evans did a post about her weekly routine the other day and it got me thinking again about my own routine and how really I could use a more formalized work schedule to help me accomplish more in my day and week. While our little Bird was still tiny, and we were grabbing sleep when we could and nursing all day and she wasnt able to play on her own, trying to get any sort of schedule in place was impossible.
But now that she is sleeping well and I can actually plan stuff (to a degree, anyway!) Id like to get more of a weekly plan in place. I will never be rigid type-A schedule keeper, its just not me. But Id like to at least organize my major housekeeping chores in some order. I think this will allow me not to feel like i have so much to do everyday, because if I can just do what is on the list for a day and know I’ll get to the other things in the rest of the week, I think it could help reduce stress!
So, our question for today is this:
What is your routine? Specifically, what is your homemaking schedule or routine? Do you have certain days of the week that you do specific chores, or do you have more of an ebb and flow to your day and week that just seems to emerge as you go along? If you have children in the home, I am especially interested to know how you balance time with them and getting your housework done. And if you are working outside the home, perhaps you can tell us how you balance getting stuff done around the house and having to work at a job (I know all about that!). Feel free to share either your daily routine or your weekly, or both!
Really looking forward to your responses, ladies. I am thinking that because these answers might be a bit more lengthy (and thats ok, I want the details!), and because I have a TON of stuff to get done today in the kitchen (namely peach jam, pickles, and freezing green beans) I probably wont copy and paste answers into the main body of the text today. Instead, lets just make sure we read the comment sections for everyone’s insights, and you can even subscribe to receive new comments by email if you want to continue to take part in the discussion as more thoughts come in. I’ll start the comments off with my own daily routine, and I’m excited to hear from each and every one of you!
Blessings, ladies, and Happy Homemaking!
